“Birthday celebration in their private room was perfect.”
Art deco decor and a jukebox full of classic opera favorites round out the sophisticated atmosphere at this oh-so-trendy North Beach favorite.

This is a terrific Italian restaurant in San Francisco's North Beach neighborhood. It has red leather booths, dim lighting and delicious food. I was there in April of this year and had a scrumptious veal ragu penne (I believe), and I sampled my niece's cauliflower...More

Good Italian food. Servers are attentive and friendly and the best Manhattan I think I've ever had. The pig tails as a starter were yummy,like the best chicharrones you've ever had. Definitely coming back!

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
